Things I Never Thought I’d Say, #6.

Hi, internet. It’s been a long time. It’s not you, it’s me. Been a bit distracted, not as motivated to write, and certainly not spending as much time in front of the computer as I did when I was working.

I’m not going to make any promises about whether this is a return to blogging, but we’ll see. This one was just too good to pass up.

So here is another of those things I never thought I’d say as a parent, but it came out of my mouth today anyway:

“Get your frog out of your pants.”

“Your mother just burped really loud, right in your ear, and you didn’t even show her any appreciation.”

Things I Never Thought I’d Say, #3

It’s been a while, but it’s time for another installment of Things I Never Thought I’d Say as a Parent:

“It’s probably a good idea not to eat anything that’s been in your brother’s pants.”

— to Chester, when he asked if he could eat a snowball that fell out of Peanut’s pants leg when they were undressing after playing in the snow.

“I don’t care. You don’t throw your cheese at your dad.”

— to Peanut, when he decided to throw his cheese across the room, and his excuse when it went behind the big heavy furniture was, “But I was throwing it at you!”

Things I Never Thought I’d Say

With a new blog comes a new category of posts: Things I Never Thought I’d Say as a parent. Every parent has these, and there are the obvious Things:

  • Because I Said So
  • Go Ask Your Mother
  • I’ll Give You Something To Cry About
  • Just Wait Until We Get Home
These are not those Things. These are unique Things, like this one that I found myself yelling last night (which shall be entered here as Things I Never Thought I’d Say #1):
  • Boys! No More Baseball In The Car!
